On August 15-26, the Israel Air Force (IAF) will reportedly join the US, UAE, and Pakistani air forces for the prestigious Red Flag 16-4 exercise in Nevada. Israel has no formal relations with the UAE or Pakistan, though the latter has promised diplomacy if Israel were to find a Palestinian solution which satisfies them.
The Red Flag exercise is the US Air Force’s (USAF) “premier air-to-air combat training exercise,” according to their site. During the exercise, allied countries join US fighters in aerial dogfights between a red team and a blue team, working to complete their missions while SAMs and ground-to-air defense mechanisms work to stop them.
Israel was included in these special exercises last year as well as this year. This demonstrates once again the special relationship between Israel and the United States—a relationship that was prophesied in the Bible 2,000 years ago.
